Why is there a need for Water Stores? Water stores fill the need for low cost safe drinking water that taste great. Most people in the U.S. will buy it because it tastes great or they do not trust the quality of water coming from their taps.
There are several different options for safe, bottled drinking water.
The first option is to buy bottled water from a store such as a grocery store, yet most times this ends up costing up to $5.00 a gallon for smaller bottles such as .5 liters. On sale, lower cost 1 gallon bottles of water will cost you about $1.50. People do not want to pay prices this high, which is what creates demand for water stores even in well-established areas.
Another option is home delivery, but that costs on an average about $8.50 per five gallons of water or $1.75 a gallon. Some people do enjoy home deliveries, and with a water store it is possible to set up your own home delivery routes if you have a means of transporting the water to customers for home delivery. The water store will sell water for different prices depending on the location. In the Sunbelt areas of the U.S. the average price is 50-80 cents per gallon, which is due the large number of vending machines outside of many food stores. In many of the colder regions of the country it is sold for 60-95 cents per gallon.
Many water stores are also selling alkaline for a much higher price of $1.50 to $3.50 per gallon.
Many water stores also bring in additional revenue by selling bottles, crocks, coolers, and various general merchandise items. Water stores typically claim to sell purified water, which is water below 30 ppm of contaminants. This means that water stores actually sell a higher quality water than many other bottled water alternatives. Many types of bottled water contain much higher levels of contaminants, such as many bottled spring waters that contain 100 to 200 ppm of contaminants.
Studies show that water stores often make the customer feel better about the water they are drinking, meaning that they feel the water is cleaner, because if the store is clean and well kept the customer makes this association towards the quality and cleanliness of the water. Keeping a clean and presentable store will attract customers and make them have a higher quality perception of your water versus the other alternatives for getting water.
The Nature's Water Store is a Mini- Water Plant:
In most cases water stores are a smaller size bottling plant or Independent Water Producers with the same type of equipment as the larger manual filling bottling plants. The big difference is they don’t need to store the water or the bottles because people re-fill their own bottles with fresh great tasting drinking water. There is no bottle cost or expensive delivery cost so they can sell the water for less and still be very profitable.
Nature's AWS also offers equipment service to ensure that your water store equipment is properly serviced and maintained. We like to see all of our customers succeed in creating a profitable business and will work closely with you through the entire establishment of the project to help facilitate this success.
